Pink Grapefruit & Avocado Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 perfectly ripe avocado (I know it is hard to tell at times!)
  • 1 large pink grapefruit
  • 6-10 cos or romaine lettuce leaves
  • 2 sprigs of coriander
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon (juice)
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Wash the cos lettuce leaves & drain. Arrange nicely on a large flat serving dish.
  2. With a sharp knife, peel the grapefruit, discarding all the peel and white pith.
  3. Cut the grapefruit into segments & remove the white membrane as you go.
  4. Remove the skin and seed of the avocado and cut into quarters, slice the avocado lengthwise into 12 pieces.
  5. Arrange the prepared grapefruit & avocado onto the lettuce.
  6. Wash the coriander & pluck the leaves & sprinkle over salad.
  7. To dress the salad, finely grate 1 teaspoon zest & squeeze the juice from the lemon.
  8. Whisk the zest, juice, mustard, oil, salt & pepper in a small bowl or shaker.
  9. Splash the salad with the dressing, as much or as little as you desire. You can keep the left over dressing for your next salad.
  10. Enjoy this tasty zesty salad!
